The NOAA Research Council is responsible for the oversight and production of a variety of planning and informational documents, including NOAA's 20-Year Research Vision and 5-Year Research and Development Plan.  The Council also oversees workshops as needed to inform NOAA's long-range R&D planning.  

In addition, the Council oversees a subset of NOAA's science fact sheets:  the State of the Science Fact Sheets.  These fact sheets are designed to assist the general public in understanding the state of the science in key research areas of high interest to the public and/or where there may be diverse scientific views within NOAA.
